A new film explores the feelings of war guilt for Japanese people. Caterpillar is about a soldier, haunted by his experiences of torture and rape in China during the war, who returns to Japan a hero…but without any legs or arms.
Though he is torn apart internally by his feelings of guilt for his actions in Asia, he is still very keen of screwing his wife! She obliges like a good woman was expected back then (and still now!), despite the obvious practical difficulties of having sex with a severely disabled man.
The director, Koji Wakamatsu, actually got his break in the industry working for pink films, so it’s no surprise that this is a slightly kinky (and provocative) take on the war trauma for Japanese. (It was also released on the anniversary of the Hiroshima Bomb.)
Considering the movie also stars Shinobu Terajima you can at least expect some realistic sex scenes — she is one of the few Japanese actresses prepared to take her clothes off. (To be fair, though, Terajima has already won a major international award for her performance in this film!)
